Because of pink

Carla Kogelman, Netherlands

When I met Tex, Morris and Soesja for the first time in 2015, they were three years old and would turn four the next day. After a shoot ‚we would like to have a family portrait‘, I could not let go of them anymore. And so a new series started. The dizygotic triplets Tex, Morris & Soesja (2011) live with their older brother Roefie and their mother and father in a colourful house in Utrecht, an average Dutch town. Every kid is trying to find his or her own way, looking for his or her identity. The boys versus the girl. The girl alone. The boy(s) who likes to wear pink and dresses. But not always. It happens, it is allowed.
